Check the microphone slider to make sure that it is at full volume, all the way to the right as shown below. If you find the recording sounds low or distorted, adjust the microphone slider. POOR SOUND QUALITY: • Check your stylus to make sure it is secured to the tone arm. The stylus must be connected to the tone arm whenever using the turntable. • Make sure that your RCA plugs are plugged into a source or not touching bare metal. If you are experiencing noise through the USB, you may have interference from the RCA plugs. Ensure the USB cable is not touching or near any other cables. • If you experience any odd sounds coming from the recording, try closing all applications and restarting the computer. Only run Audacity while recording. 50 Problem Cause Power does not come on when the unit is Unit is unplugged. switched on. The volume is turned THE WHOLE UNIT down (to MIN). the speakers.

These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the following measures: -­‐ Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. -­‐ Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. -­‐ Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. -­‐ Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help. This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate this equipment. (The label is on the bottom of the unit) 53 INDUSTRY CANADA This device complies with Industry Canada licence-­‐exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device. Under Industry Canada regulations, this radio transmitter may only operate using an antenna of a type and maximum (or lesser) gain approved for the transmitter by Industry Canada. To reduce potential radio interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotropically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than that necessary for successful communication. Conformément à la réglementation d'Industrie Canada, le présent émetteur radio peut fonctionner avec une antenne d'un type et d'un gain maximal (ou inférieur) approuvé pour l'émetteur par Industrie Canada. Dans le but de réduire les risques de brouillage radioélectrique à l'intention des autres utilisateurs, il faut choisir le type d'antenne et son gain de sorte que la puissance isotrope rayonnée équivalente (p.i.r.e.) ne dépasse pas l'intensité nécessaire à l'établissement d'une communication satisfaisante. Le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d'Industrie Canada applicables aux appareils radio exempts de licence. L'exploitation est autorisée aux deux conditions suivantes : (1) l'appareil ne doit pas produire de brouillage, et (2) l'utilisateur de l'appareil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi, même si le brouillage est susceptible d'en compromettre le fonctionnement. 54 55 5000T140500E 56
